Review summary

The AC was not working well at most times in the casino and the Rotterdam Dining Room and the food in the Lido was always cold.  The crew were nice but most spoke so little English it was difficult to communicate with them.  I had been on 6 cruises previously and this was the worst I have even been on.  Kids cannon-balling into the pool and no parents around to stop them too.  I doubt I will go again on Veendam.

The cabin layout is not conducive for two people to move about at the same time.

Ship tip

Do not expect to eat as good as those who pay Extra to eat in the Pinnacle. I hate ships that are once again trying to create "Classes" by Charging to eat better food in private restaurants. I ate Filet Mignon in the Lido and it was both Cold and Tough. It takes a Bad Cook to ruin Filet.
